Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the site grows bigger and there’re numerous users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser video games or live chat portals, for example, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
Node.js in Hosting
If you host a web application on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and you wish to try Node.js, you will be able to add it to your web hosting account irrespective of the hosting package that you’re using. You can make this via the Upgrades section in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js in no more than a couple of minutes after you add this service to the account. You will be able to select how many instances you’d like to add to your account – one instance means one app using Node.js. In the new section that will show up in the Control Panel, you can type the path to the .js file in your hosting account and select whether the file in question will be reachable through the server’s shared IP or via a dedicated IP. Our system will also specify a port for the connection. You’ll be able to shut down or to reboot each instance independently, in case it’s required.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform has, due to the fact that it’s available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated account management tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. In case you would like to employ Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can pick the amount of instances which the platform will use when you’re adding this service to your semi-dedicated package. Then, you’ll have to enter the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new menu that will show up in the Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the path to the specific app will go through a dedicated IP – if you’ve got one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you run can be rebooted or cancelled separately and you can see the output of your apps with just several mouse clicks.
Node.js in VPS Hosting
You can take advantage of Node.js with any of the Linux VPS hosting offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its own section where you can configure it with a couple of mouse clicks even if you have no experience with such software, since Hepsia is quite intuitive and simple to work with. All it takes to start a new Node.js instance is to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to select the IP address that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port number will be set automatically as well. There won’t be any limits on how many sites can use Node.js at the same time, so you can use our virtual machines for many websites and enjoy an amazing overall performance. Fast-access links in the Node.js section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to start, to discontinue or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to make use of one of our Linux dedicated web hosting for your script-driven applications and if you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you’ll be able to use Node.js at no additional cost, as the platform is included in our in-house built Control Panel tool. As our dedicated servers are really powerful, you will get stunning performance even if you host plenty of Node.js instances at the same time. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it rather easy for you to create a new instance even if you’ve got little or no experience. Entering the .js file path and selecting a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will have to do yourself and once our system has assigned a port number to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the Node.js instances that you’ve activated can be restarted or discontinued separately and you will be given access to an elaborate output log for each application that uses Node.js.
